Squid Ink’s SQ-10 and SQ-30 laser coding systems are designed for high speed food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and other primary coding applications. Squid Ink lasers can permanently mark onto paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, wood, coated metal, leather, and more. Users select between a 10W (SQ-10) and 30W system (SQ-30) depending on their specific application requirements.


 Permanent coding of text, time and date, bar codes, serial numbering and more • Quick and easy installation for both stationary and moving products • Easily fits into production environments where space is limited • Laser head can be rotated 90° in less than 5 minutes  


No ink/consumables for lower cost of ownership • Clean and eco-friendly coding system • Rugged cast aluminum controller body • IP54 rating ensures maximum reliability and uptime in demanding applications • Integrated key switch and interlock relay for increased safety on the production floor  


Scribing technology produces non-dot matrix, razor sharp marks on a variety of substrates • Ability to mix different fonts and logos in a single message • Discrete coding ability for anti-counterfeiting and traceability • Ideal coding alternative where CIJ systems are not practical  


• All-in-one design for fast installation and line changes • Easy to use touchscreen software built right into controller • Intuitive system includes focus finder and code area preview window on product during setup • Easily configurable in a variety of angles with optional mobile stand  


Rugged design. High quality coding. Low cost of ownership. Your benefits go on and on. When it comes to industrial laser coding, rely on Squid Ink to provide the right solution for your coding and marking needs.
